A new full-service emergency room will soon be available in Fenton at the McLaren facility.

The current McLaren medical building on Owen Road in Fenton has plans to add the full-service ER soon. Half of the current building already contains physician offices, diagnostic imaging services, and a lab. Now, preparations are being made to use the other half of the building for the emergency room.

McLaren will be investing approximately $12 million in the project with hopes of having the facility open in March. The Fenton ER will be similar to the Clarkston facility. The Clarkston ER has 22 private rooms, two resuscitation rooms, telestroke services, CT scans, X-rays, and ultrasounds.

Ambulances in the area will be able to transport patients to this new emergency room 24/7 once it is open. If a patient requires inpatient care, they will be transferred to McLaren Flint.

Once the facility is completed, McLaren will be holding a public open house for the community to check it out.
